The 2020 Colouwork Club ran as a subscription club at the beginning of the year and featured three accessory patterns designed to progressively grow your colourwork skills. All three patterns are now available as individual patterns and as kits.
The Brunstane Cowl
The Brunstane cowl is an ideal beginner colourwork pattern that makes a great gift. The pattern includes lots of tips and links to detailed tutorials, so you can be sure of a successful project.
The cowl is a simple tube, tapered slightly so that it flares around the shoulders and hugs the neck. This shaping is achieved by simply changing to a smaller needle size; there’s no increasing or decreasing to worry about combining with the colourwork. A cowl is also the ideal circumference to practice your stranded colourwork tension on: working on one circular needle means there are no “ladders” to worry about at the gaps between needles, and the larger circumference and regular length needle tips helps knitters to relax.
